The Lancaster University Campus Community Fridge, the first of its kind in the UK, is helping to reduce food waste, raise awareness of the global issue and make free food accessible to people every day. An ever-growing team of student volunteers coordinate daily collections of unsold food, donated by on-campus providers, with the collected food made freely available for anyone to take via a communal fridge and dry store.
Born out of Lancaster University’s annual Intercollegiate Sustainability Challenge, the project has steadily grown since its official launch in November 2017, with ~1.5 tonnes of food saved from landfill so far, equivalent to ~7.5 tCO2e.
In addition, the project has brought together a community of students, provided volunteering and leadership experience and inadvertently helped several students through periods of food insecurity.
Through its Facebook page which Has over 1,195 followers, the Campus Community Fridge is now inspiring students across the UK and beyond to tackle food-waste.
